Our PPE program exposes you to many different professors and courses. In your philosophy coursework, you’ll explore the big questions of life and learn to think deeply. In your political science courses, you’ll learn how political systems operate in the U.S. and abroad. Finally, in your economic courses – delivered through the Dicke College of Business Administration – you’ll analyze the market forces that impact social issues.

Although you’ll study three subjects, you’ll still graduate in four years. Guaranteed. In fact, if you can’t complete the program in four years through no fault of your own – we’ll pick up the tab for the rest. 

Be prepared to learn just as much outside the classroom as you do inside. You’ll have lots of opportunities to read, write, solve problems, communicate complex ideas, and make informed and ethical decisions. You’ll graduate with a flexible skillset that will stand out in the marketplace.

Large institutions just can’t provide the individualized attention and opportunity you’ll find here. You could serve in student government or co-author research papers with your professors. You could study abroad, attend the Republican or Democratic National Convention, or spend a summer interning in Washington, D.C. You could head up a student organization or honorary society, play on a sports team, or perform with music groups.

At ONU, you’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships with your classmates. Our dedicated and distinguished professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, research, internships, and post-graduate or career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success and open doors for you.

Our PPE program prepares you for three distinct paths: law school; a career in the public, nonprofit or private industry sector; or graduate school. Whichever path you choose, you’ll be ready!
